It Works! Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*




I have heard of these wraps for a long time now. I didn't know that they could really work. So when I was contacted by Angelique at It Works! I knew I would say yes, because I really wanted to try them!

I received 3 wraps and a defining gel sample to try out.

 Here is a before of the front of my legs
 And the back. Sorry for the dirty mirror.
OH MY GOD this is embarrassing!
 With one wrap on my right leg
 On both legs, and the excess I cut off on my sides.

So as you can see, after you put the wrap on, you wrap it in saran wrap. Mine wasn't very clingy so it kept coming off a bit.

The wrap comes wrapped up in it's package and then you pull it apart, cut anything you need to and then put the wrap on with the gel towards your skin. The gel is what does the work for you. 

Before you apply your wraps, you drink a TON of water the day before and that day. This helps your body detox. 
It's a very cooling effect, I almost felt like my legs were freezing off, literally! It was so cold and chilling. But it was a good feeling. 

After you're done (about 45-60 minutes) you take them off and throw them away, then you rub the remaining gel into your skin. It's the gel that does the work, so you want to use every last bit of it. 

Now, I didn't notice a TON of difference. My skin was SUPER soft after the application and I noticed a bit of a difference in my tone, but I didn't take after pictures, because they wouldn't look any different. I hear that people don't see a real improvement until they're used 3-4 wraps. 

The defining gel she sent me is to use in between uses, but I was using it about twice a week for a while and it wasn't make a ton of a difference so I quit! 

But these products would probably be amazing if you purchased more of them and did more at a time. 

Price: 4 applicators is $59. I don't think this is bad at all!

Overall: **** I'm only giving it a 4/5 because I didn't get a chance to try the WHOLE system. 

*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from It Works! n exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to It Works! for allowing me to review this product and for offering a giveaway

Luis' passion for research and development in the skin care, nutritional, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries began when he was a child, learning natural remedies from his grandmother in Mexico. His abundant credentials, including his experience as the CEO of a top pharmaceutical company, his international reknown as an herbalist and university educator of phytotherapy (the uses of plants for medicinal purposes), along with his keen personal interest in natural solutions made Luis the ideal candidate for the It Works!
